Refinery29 is participating in First Lady Michelle Obama's #GimmeFive challenge. To learn more, click here.
As part of our collaboration with the First Lady, we were invited into the White House kitchen with chef Cris Comerford, the first female White House chef in U.S. history. While the surroundings are somewhat intimidating (the kitchen is behind bullet proof glass), she immediately made us feel at home with her warm and welcoming demeanor.
Although we knew we were going to be cooking with her, we had no idea she would be designing a dish using our #GimmeFive ingredients! That's right: A White House chef designed this recipe just for us. It's fast, healthy, and is the perfect meal to make for dinner — with enough leftovers for lunch the next day.
